First time seeing Billy & co since 1/22/97 on the MCIS tour. They were
tremendous tonight hitting every nail on the head. I really loved "Oceania"
hearing it earlier this year and when I found out they were performing the
entire thing I promised myself if they added an Ohio date, I wouldnt miss it.
Thankfully (or not so thankfully), Hurricane Sandy nixed a few dates on the
east coast. Because of this they added a few here and there with the make-ups
this December. Columbus was one. On top of that, they played the Newport Music
Hall instead of an arena, which was the norm on this tour. Standing outside in
the pouring rain for an hour before doors was worth it for my taping location.
Everything went nearly perfect, the fans around me were quiet (for the most
part) and thanks to the rail to my left, kept the rambunctious crowd on the
floor away from me. Seemed like security had to break up a few things in the
crowd off & on. The show was packed and sold out.
